Avenging Angel

Dir: Robert O'Neill
Star: Betsy Russell, Rory Calhoun, Ossie Davis, Cliff Gorman

[3] Less of the same, in this sequel to Angel. The cop who helped her in the original is killed, so Angel returns to the streets to try and find the killer. After a barn-storming first 15 minutes, which surpass anything in the first film, it calms down into something dangerously near a TV movie, with little of the grittiness of it's predecessor. Most of the cast are back, but seem sadly out of place and Betsy Russell is too all-American to believe in.


Different actress, same moderate sleaze
